Funky Blues Night at Jazzaar Festival

A Funky Blues Night

April 22, 2017 in KUK Aarau
A Funky Blues Night at Jazzaar Festival will present some well loved Blues repertoire sprinkled with funk and R&B of the 1940s to the present with exquisite arrangements played by The Swiss Youth Blues Band (SYBB). As is the custom at Jazzaar’s 25 years of Bandstand Learning with Role Models program, there will be seasoned masters taking the lead chairs in the youth ensemble. Joining the musical director Etienne Stadwijk the keyboarder (NL) will be Tom Walsch on lead trumpet (UK), Birch Johnson on trombone (USA), Charles McNeal on tenor sax (USA), Dean Brown the guitarist (USA), Tim Akers on synths (USA), Dennis Montgomery III on hammond B3 (USA), Danny Gottlieb on drums (USA) and Beth Gottlieb on percussions (USA). The SYBB is comprised of top talents from Switzerland, the EU and Asia. Antics and entertainment on stage among masters and apprentices of diverse cultures is most definitely in store for the audience’ delight.
The Jazzaar Festival week provides a mutually fun and enriching experience for both the selected young talents of the SYBB and their mentors as they collaborate together in presenting this musical variety.
